Well there should be an option to flag games or characters for PVP/PK when you make them, that people can "harass" you anywhere you go in game..
Shouldn't just totally remove that option, that was a really bad move by Blizzards part. Because of this I lost my identity in Diablo 3..And I want it back!
You didn't lose it, because you never had it to begin with. I wouldn't disagree with an option to flag an entire game pvp or not pvp.
What YOU enjoy does not mean *I* enjoy. Why do I need to alter my game-play style based on PVE which the entire game is based around so you can PvP when you want, when PvP was added as an afterthought?
I'm not against PvP at all, I play other games where you cannot entirely escape PvP ever. However, in the Diablio universe, i believe it belongs in the arena, not in any random public game because you feel like being a <insert bad name here>.
As to the 4 player vs 8 player vs 16 player you want. I tended to prefer games with a few friends rather than a bunch of randoms. I felt 8 was a bit too much, and took away from the immersion. Many games, you could do nothing, and people would not even notice because you had 7 others picking up your slack.
The more players you have, the less each ones contribution WILL be. So, I'm fairly significant in a 4 person game, making up 25% of the group! I'm less significant in an 8 person game at 12.5% of the group, and I'm feeling pretty insignificant in a 16 person group at 6.25% of the group.
What benefit does having 8 or 16 players bring to the table that 4 does not? The only obvious one is you can have 1 of each class in the group, which you could also achieve with 5 in game, so is irrelevant.
